HEALTH authorities in the UK have given the green light to a test to determine whether a person has been infected with the coronavirus, even without symptoms, and has developed antibodies.
This blood test has been developed by the pharmaceutical company Roche and has now been approved for use by Public Health England, the administrative body in England that manages the National Health Service (NHS).
Health authorities have indicated that this test represents a “very positive development” in the fight against Covid-19, which in the United Kingdom has already killed 33,186 people.
Until now, the authorities have expressed pessimism about this type of test, after an evaluation, they consider that it offers possibilities to know if a person is immune.
The test is considered important to help lift the confinement restrictions by Covid-19, as it will allow people with immunity to return to work with ease.
